Sponsored climb – Scafell Pike

On Saturday 29th July two of our team members, Sue McDowell and Sally McGregor are climbing Scafell Pike in a bid to raise much needed funds for our charity. Scafell Pike is located in the Lake District National Park and is the highest mountain in England, measuring 978 metres, or in old money 3,209 feet high. There are no buildings or ruins at the top of the pike, just amazing views, so we have our fingers crossed for good weather. If you would like to sponsor Sally and Sue, please see our website for information about how to make donations or you can use the following link:

Thank you so much for your support.

Support for unpaid carers

Hello Your Voice member

Norfolk County Council and local health services have been working with Carer UK to develop a new online resource for unpaid carers.

Local carers have suggested a list of key links and now want your help in deciding which ones to include on the new website. We are also interested to find out if you have any suggestions for information or organisations that we may have missed.

Take our survey by clicking here. It should only take a couple of minutes to complete.
